Question: How does one support children correctly in choosing a profession when it is unknown if they will have a need for spiritual development?
Answer: In our day this is a problem because all of the professions will gradually be eliminated and disappear.
The only area in which a person will be busy for a long time is the art of cooking, all forms of food preparation. The profession of chef will continue for a long time because this is a basic human desire, and everything else will rapidly change.
Other than that, a demand will remain for anything that requires planning: buildings, furniture, and so forth. But in general, I don’t see a serious future for any of the professions.
